If you follow the skincare industry or are interested in new skincare treatments, you may have heard of microneedling. This treatment works by creating micro-wounds in the skin using very tiny needles to trigger collagen production for healthy, strong, glowing skin. It also helps the skin to repair skin damage and scarring. However, many people are using at-home microneedling devices to try to receive the benefits of professional microneedling treatments. Unfortunately, these DIY options will not give you drastic results, and may even be dangerous if you are not knowledgeable in the correct technique.
At-home microneedling treatments are typically equipped with needles less than 1mm in length. Professional treatments have needles that are between 1mm and 3mm in length, which allows for more controlled wounding, producing better results. Microneedling technique also plays a big role in your outcomes. An experienced aesthetician is always going to provide you with better results. This is because they have the skillset to ensure safe and optimal results.
Professional treatments are also much safer than DIY treatments. Creating skin injuries can be a very dangerous process, and if you do not know what you are doing you could end up damaging your skin permanently or causing an infection. This is why it is best to leave this treatment to professional hands.
When microneedling is performed by a professional, it will be virtually painless and will address the following skin concerns:
- Acne scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Dull complexion
- Skin elasticity
- Common signs of aging
This treatment is also less expensive than laser therapies and requires no downtime. This can be a huge benefit for those who have busy lifestyles and do not have time to recover or those who are looking for results quickly. Professional microneedling also only requires a series of 3-6 treatments for optimal results, while at-home microneedling will require frequent and consistent treatments.
When you choose to receive microneeding in a professional setting, your aesthetician can apply professional-grade topical treatments such as serums that are created to address your individual skin concern. When combined with microneedling, these serums will penetrate the skin deeply for optimal absorption.
